Cremation Arrangements Facts

What is a cremation?

Cremation is an alternative to burial. It is the process of turning the human body into what is known as “cremains.” A cremation is when your body is burned in a furnace to convert the organic matter into ash. Funeral homes will use a crematory that can incinerate the human body in order to dispose of it, and the time it takes to cremate a body varies anywhere from 1-3 hours.

What is the cheapest way to be cremated?

Direct cremation is the cheapest and simplest form. As with traditional funerals, you can save money by selecting a less expensive coffin and urn or opting to be cremated without a public memorial service. Direct Cremation is the best option for those looking to save money, as it can avoid burial costs. No embalming or viewings are required and only one trip needs to be made by family members if they live nearby in order to take advantage of this service before anything else happens with regards to arrangements.

What is the difference between cremation and direct cremation?

Traditional cremation

The main difference between traditional cremation and direct cremation is how quickly a person’s remains can be released. In a traditional cremation, the body is taken from where it is and brought to a mortuary or funeral home. It then undergoes expensive preparations such as embalming or dressing before being prepared for viewing at memorial services with family members present. The body is then taken to the crematorium and cremated. The family will receive their loved one’s remains after they are processed. After the body is cremated, it will be given to family members for burial or other disposition.

Direct cremation

Direct cremation takes place when there’s no preparation of any kind, and it saves families money by not having a funeral service or burials in accordance with customs from different cultures around the world where people practice them. This also speeds up process time should someone need death certificates among other things following an estate matter which can be settled easier.

What is a cremation urn?

A cremation urn is a vessel which holds the cremated remains of an individual. It is typically a decorative item, often with a sentimental or symbolic significance, and they come in various types.

Who uses cremation urns?

Cremation is the preferred way to honor an individual’s remains after they have passed away in many religions. Hindu and Buddhist practices specify that it should be done, with other significant mainstream ones following suit despite some restrictions on how cremated ashes can or cannot be used by their faith community due religious beliefs.
The cremains are thought by many religions as nothing more than vessels containing their souls, and through this process it allows them to ascend into heaven or another life stage without feeling like they’re really gone because there’s still a chance at resurrection if you believe in these rituals enough.

What are urns made from?

    • Marble/Stone
    • Ceramic
    • Wood
    • Metal
    • Biodegradable Materials (bamboo, cellulose fiber, et)
    • Plastic
